Help Provide Food To Those In Need

$1,701 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 32 people in 21 months
We provide services to help people living in poverty work their way to self-sufficiency. Food support is an important part of those services, We have a grocery store here in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica, where we have a charge account. At the current time, the account is near its limit. We also have a vegetable truck that somes here weekly, and we have outstanding charges with them. Your donations now will go straight into the Food Program. Since 2005, we have fed over 49,000 people healthy meals three days a week. Things are getting cramped right now, and we really need your help to keep food flowing into the hungry tummies we serve.

From January to October 2018, the excitment at El Puente continues! Our log data shows that we served 4,684 healthy bowls of soup to 2,602 Attendees! It also says that we were able to get that done with the able help of 630 Volunteers and 155 paid Workers. Support from great folks like yourself has made this possible.

The great folks at Old Harbour Supermarket in Puerto Viejo have granted us a charge account, so we can keep the food flowing for the people who come to the Community Kitchen. We're bouncing off the credit limit, and your donations now can help us pay the account down and keep the food flowing here at El Puente!

So get ready - get set - DONATE! This Tuesday is an international holiday - "Giving Tuesday" - and let's see how much we can put together between now and then!

These deductions are tax-deductible in the USA.

And Thank You for your support!

Busy day today! 36 people showed up for the Community Kitchen - lots of healthy veggie soup! Made a quick run to our grocery store to get the food we use to make up a bag of food - we usually pay our workers in bags of nutritious food rather than money. That way, we make sure that things flow smoothly with the Food Program and the Community Kitchen. You can help - just jump into the link below and donate what you can - every donation helps us help people to work their way to self-sufficiency!
